River Central Comprehensive Plan

Currently in March of 2021, the Borough of Northampton is in the early stage of preparing a new comprehensive plan in conjunction with our four neighboring municipalities:  Catasauqua and North Catasauqua Boroughs and East Allen and Hanover Townships.  The plan will be a multi-municipality plan for the aforementioned municipalities.  The Lehigh Valley Planning Commission is acting as the consultant to the five municipalities to create this plan.  

We are attaching a PDF copy of the Commonwealth of PA legal requirements for a comprehensive plan as defined by the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code Section 301 of PA Act 247 as amended.  Please click on the PDF link to Section 301 for detailed text of the enabling legislation defining a comprehensive plan content.
